Respect has no face, no color, no race,
It should be given to everyone by everyone.
Respect should not require one to divert from their own morals and values,
It should not depend on your amount of income or the type of job that you have.
Respect should not depend on the amount of friends you have,
Respect should not depend on your social status.
It should not depend on your appearance.
Respect should not depend on the amount of shortcomings in your life, for we all have fallen short at some point.
Respect should not depend on whether or not you have a significant other,
Respect should not depend on whether you are talented or not.
Respect is accepting people for who they are;
It is treating everyone fairly, regardless of who they are.
Respect is loving everyone as you would want to be loved,
Respect is making sure that people always know how special they are, for we are all special in our own way.
Respect is lifting people up and celebrating each and every life,
It is saying “thank you”, “excuse me”, and “you’re welcome”,
Respect is being the shoulder for someone to cry on as you would want a shoulder in your time of need.
Respect is what the world needs in order to survive in these hard times:
Respect is the key.
Respect each other, respect each other, respect each other.
